The Vancouver 2010 Winter Games are here!

leave a comment »

Well, almost.  The opening ceremonies take place this evening (6pm Vancouver time; 9pm Eastern time) but there has already been some unfortunate news.  Georgian athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili, 21, was killed during his luge practice run this morning.  Reporters are saying that he he hit the wall coming around the final bend on the track, which has been deemed the world’s hardest and dangerous.  So, so tragic.  My condolences to his family, friends and fellow Olympians.  Let’s hope the Olympics will bring everyone together during such a sad, sad situation.

Despite everything, I’m looking forward to see what the VANOC people have put together for the opening ceremony, after yearsss of planning.  I have a feeling it’s gonna be kickass.  Wish I could be there as who knows when will be the next time we host an Olympic games…but either way, I’m still cheering, GO CANADA GO!!!

No Kobe at All-Star weekend.

leave a comment »

Boooohoooo.  I really am shedding a tear that Kobe Bryant won’t be participating in NBA All-Star Weekend (begins this weekend).  Yet again, the guy got millions of votes beating everyone in the league, but he’s sitting this one out due to injury.  Womp womp.
The randomness with this situation – his substitute is Jason Kidd.  Confused?  Me too.

For those Iverson fans, he won’t be there either since his daughter is sick.  Too bad because he managed to score a spot on the team after all of the hits and misses were happening with AI over the past year.

I’m still looking forward to the dunk contest.  DeRozan better show ’em all up and take home the trophy.  I’ve heard that he may be recreating Vince Carter’s famous dunk from when he won the slam dunk competition from back in the day.  Regardless, I can’t wait to see what he’s got.

Manny Pacman – are you acting a little sketch or what?

Not sure what’s up with this mini interview, but Manny Pacquiao seems to mess up his words towards the end of chat.  I still would have wanted to see him kick Mayweather’s ass.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
